Despite living in this town for many years, I have only recently discovered this excellent restaurant and wine bar in connection with a visit to the nearby "Kammerspiele". It's located in a residential street where you wouldn't normally expect it, but it's only a few steps away from themain tourist attractions and close to the Rhine. There may be no... More

The service is so friendly with smiling faces (don't see too often). I LOVE the wine selection. In the menu they describe exactly which 5 vineyards they support and where they are located. Offer a...

We just went here last night for dinner having seen some of the great reviews. The food was very interesting, I had (from the 'local specialities' menu) a salad with sausage. It was exactly as it sounds - a salad where sausage and cheese were the 2 main ingredients, along with a smattering of other vegetables. It was quite nice.... More

Pork schnitzel with French Fries and mushroom sauce and salad. Portion was just nice and the Cajun fries was yummy. Ordered a glass of Pinot Blanc recommended by the waiter. Fantastic!

This is our favourite restaurant to eat when we are staying on Mainz. Great schnitzels and steaks. Wonderful salads with homemade dressings. Fabulous staff. What else could you want?

A very German style restaurant. Warm and cozy setting. Delicious pork filet with potatoes. And a very nice dry white wine. The service was also nice.

So sorry to read that the service was slow when you last visited us. Things are really full because of the holiday season, but that is no excuse for excessively long waits! We will try to have additional staff on those evenings where we expect a high number of guests. More

We booked this restaurant after reading reviews on trip advisor and also wanted somewhere near our hotel, the Hyatt Regency, for our first night. This place is a gem, a complete eclectic mix! Apart from the menu which has traditional German food including schnitzel and fried chicken, there is usually a daily special. I had goose leg with red cabbage... More
